We are a short walk from Camden Yards/Oriole Park & M&T/Ravens Stadium. We are very close to the Convention Center, Downtown & the Inner Harbor.
We hosted a brunch for ten 15-16 year olds for my daughter’s sweet 16 at SoBo. The food was excellent and the ambience lovely and with an overall bright and positive air. However, the very best part is the staff. Linda was wonderful and setting everything up. The team on site was thoughtful, proactive, high energy. It was a wonderful experience from start to end. I could not recommend SoBo more highly.
Sobo is a gem in Federal Hill! I appreciate their attention to detail and love to bring family and friends. Great spot for wholesome food!
Met a friend at SoBo cafe for dinner and then brought home some carry-out for my husband. All of our food, even the carry-out (which sat for > an hour bc we were talking for awhile), was DELICIOUS! It was so good that I questioned outloud, several times, why I hadn't been eating at SoBo since the second they opened.
The arugula and gruyere flatbread was heavenly. My burger was one of the best I'd ever eaten, cooked exactly as requested, with fantastic fingerling potatoes. The wine flight was very good and reasonably priced. And the sundae was a traditional Bmore CMP (with a brownie as the "C") with caramel to boot. I will definitely be back!
We went for Mother's Day and had a delicious brunch. I personally really *REALLY* enjoyed the chicken pot pie, and my daughter loved the chocolate chip pancakes.
Everything was exactly right, from when we stepped in the door to when we walked back out. It’s a great welcoming, relaxed vibe there, and we felt taken care of and valued as customers. The food is outstanding! We would love to come back soon!
Great brunch. Smoked Salmon Benedict is my favorite.
Asparagus Soup added to the good brunch experience.
We had a lovely brunch at SoBo. The menu is diverse with unique offerings. Great little place, lovely people, fabulous food. Can't wait to go back!
A neighborhood gem. We meet there monthly for our book club and my husband and I often walk down for dinner as well. Our favorite neighborhood spot by far- local, fresh, great wine, beautiful rotating artists on display!
Excellent food, ambience and service! The pot pie, scallop stew and chicken all great!
Good energy for sure too!
I was at first nervous about the menu - it’s certainly all over the place! Very happy with the spicy feta spread, asparagus soup, roast corvina, and steak. Serving the steak with creamed spinach and roasted fingerling potatoes put it over the top and impossible to resist ordering. Highly recommend!
Always a favorite of ours, we were not disappointed. creative menu, good value (it was a Wednesday Wine night) and very pleasant service. Very Good dinner, and an excellent night out with friends.
Always a great meal when dining at Sobo. So friendly it’s like having a great meal at a good friends house!
One of our party had dined often at SoBo under previous ownership, but none-the-less was pleasantly impressed. I was agog with the adeptness of the staff - professional, stealthy, serve from the right, clear from the left. We will definitely keep SoBo in our brunch rotation.
A warm friendly atmosphere with consistently great food. You can’t go wrong.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere!
Always wonderful dining at SoBo Cafe! Delicious food, great service, cozy environment.
We were bringing a couple who had never been and wanted them to have a wonderful experience. Our waitress was very nice, but inattentive, forgot one of our appetizers and just not too helpful.
My husband got the fettucine and did not like it. Overall, it was very good, but do not know if either couple will come back.
This is a quaint neighborhood cafe. Local artists' work is hung on the walls and can be purchased. The space is fairly small, but it's not noisy; it's still easy to have a conversation with your dining companion(s). Service is friendly but not always very attentive; my companion and I had to wait a while for our coffee cups to be refilled. Entree portions are generous, and meals are tasty.
Lovely little neighborhood spot with very good service, great for brunch!
I had the turkey sandwich. Best I ever had. My husband said the same about the French dip. Small space. Excellent food. Good service. Very clean.
We love returning to SoBo. My husband is crazy about their chicken pot pie and it never disappoints. I and our guest had the hamburger with the works and added sautéed onions. it was delish. We were sorry we couldn't fit in the dessert when we saw the carrot cake. We will have to come back!
The food was great and healthy and fresh and presented well. The ambiance was cute and casual with many families. The noise level was a little high but not out of the ordinary. The price was less than I expected and a great deal for the quality of the food! It was a great experience, I would definitely go again.
Love this place! The service is very slow, however, which can be hard when you are there for a working lunch. It may have been wise to let the server know of a time constraint- we did not. The restaurant also seemed to be busier than the staff had expected.
Great food and rotating local art add to a great evening. We had a large party and the food came out hot and in a timely fashion.
On top of the great food, there was a great band playing, Roses and Rust!!
Food was excellent. Unfortunately, we were there on St. Patrick’s Day eve, so getting there was a hassle. Also, the construction next door was unsightly. But the service and cuisine were first rate.
Great little neighborhood gem. Food was outstanding and staff were very attentive, without being overly so. The dining area is small but comfortable. We were there for brunch at 10:30 AM on a Saturday and there were plenty of open tables, so the noise level was very low. It was nice not to have to shout in order to carry on a conversation like one has to do in so many establishments these days. Highly recommend this great little place and my wife and I will definitely be going back again in the future.
Great restaurant to catch up with friends.
SoBo Cafe is one of our neighborhood favorites. Everyone is always friendly, service is on point and well timed, and the food is DELICIOUS. Love the food, drinks, people, and atmosphere. We will be back again soon!
We live in the neighborhood, so we eat at SOBO regularly. We have never been disappointed. This evening we had the corned beef special (very tender) and a seafood stew. Both were terrific. Service is always pleasant and efficient.
Mediocre food; decent wine; nice service. OK value, but not a place to which I will likely return.
Excellent as usual--the best and friendliest place in Fed Hill. I've probably said this in other reviews, but this is our "go-to SoBOASIS"!!! Truly a Federal Hill and Baltimore gem!
It was a group of 5 of us and all enjoyed their dishes. A colleague from Italy noticed that the fettuccine was freshly made and ordered the night special it with braised beef. I had the porcini fettuccine and it was excellent. One had the pork chop, a generous serving and she said it was one of the best she had eaten. We chose Sobo because of its diverse menu (I'm vegetarian, the rest not),attention to details and what we thought were reasonable prices.
We absolutely LOVE adobo and its staff (Linda is the best) - true delicious gem in Fed Hill with real fresh food made there. Enjoy regularly
Absolutely the best French dip ever as the service is always wonderful
Normally love this place but the food was not good on Friday. Under seasoned, greasy, burned.. we will still go back. Maybe an off night.
The staff was great very attentive. They even helped to us determine if we were parked legally to avoid a ticket. Place is small but quaint. Food was very good with some different items .
SoBo Cafe has been a favorite for a long time. I returned for brunch for the first time in a while and it was just as excellent as I remembered! Great food, friendly service... GREAT food.
Very comfortable atmosphere and the food was delicious and creative.
The place was cozy and quiet. The food and service was fantastic. I go every time I’m in Baltimore and this place never disappoints.
